Ut oh...I maybe way in over my head here...lol but...
Cannot truth be absolute and relative? Yes, I see a cooked turkey on my table, that is an undeniable truth. Did my spouse cook it? maybe..maybe not..He has a hard time boiling water..lol so now we are drifting off into presumption..speculation and just guessing.
Do you not preach that many times what we are seeing may seem like the truth but is merely a lie? Trading is not absolute. isn't trading seeking the truth based on what maybe relatively true? What is the truth when trading?
To answer that, your not allowed to weave a tapistry of intellectual mumbo jumbo that leaves me here scratching my head
and you are making my brain hurt..lol
Whether your spouse cooked it or not is irrelevant...
I am only talking about complexity, a chicken that is born in nature VS a cooked chicken over lettuce with mango sauce.
The truth is what it is and is absolute.
The truth can only be relative through deviations from what is absolute (or there is no truth at all
Instead of calling the deviations within us our own personal truth we need to become more like the template that was sent to us if truth matters to us at all.
In trading, the ability to recognize the flaws in others is directly related your ability to recognize the flaws within your self.
If you spend your life covering up your flaws then how will you have such skill in trading?
In poker, the ability to read (and exploit) others is related to your ability to understand their thoughts, feelings, and motives.
If you spend your time yelling (not saying that you do
) at your spouse/parents instead of attempting to effectively communicate then how will you gain the skills to understand others?
Even if you can grasp what their weaknesses are your ability to exploit depends on the flawlessness of your execution...flawlessness (absolute).
Trading is easy because traders are people, people are flawed, and flaws are exploitable.
In my opinion, the greatest method by which you can exploit the other traders is by letting their overwhelming need to trade tip their hand.
You look over an you see that your opponent has a Full House.
You watch as he sets 5% of his stack and declares that he wishes to buy at 1.4020 and sell at 1.4005.
Some idiot across the table shouts that he will call the bet at 1.4020 and you respond by raising from 1.4005.
The other players decide that they wish to get in on the action and call your bet at 1.4005 and the first player folds.
5% of the first players stack is then given to the idiot and the Full House is yours to play instead of going into the muck (I think i just created a new form of poker...lol).
